shot tower

A very high structure, usually cylindrical and constructed of brick, once used in making lead shot for muskets. At the top of the tower, a molten alloy of lead was poured through a coarse metal screen, forming small lead globules that solidified; these pellets became spherical as they dropped, finally falling into a container of water at the base of the tower.
